Keith Urban is one of the newest "American Idol" judges, having only been on the job two days so far, but he's already feeling right at home!

"Extra" host Mario Lopez caught up with the country crooner and his his wife -- some Emmy-nominated actress named Nicole Kidman -- on the red carpet at the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday.

"I'm loving it!" the Australian native exclaimed when asked about his new gig. "I did a season in Australia on 'The Voice' and I really loved it."

Sure he's judged, but Keith is no stranger to auditioning for these shows either.

"I did several different singing competition shows for television when I was very, very young," he shared. "I've been on both sides so hopefully I can deliver it with a bit of empathy."
